Our Rotary Club of Victoria-Harbourside was formed in 1980 and was the first Breakfast Club in Canada. Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. 
 
During the first week of June of this year, fourteen of our Club members attended the 2019 Rotary International Convention in Hamburg, Germany. Interestingly, our International Theme for this year is “ROTARY CONNECTS THE WORLD”. Consequently, at the Convention there were 25,000 members from all over the world in attendance who were able to meet and connect in a family of fellowship! In addition, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.
 
It is my wish to work with all of our members to continue the rich, proud and successful history of this Rotary Club’s contribution, fellowship and service to our local and global communities.
